Psychology

Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and behaviour: how we think, feel, act and interact, individually and in groups.

Psychology is concerned with all aspects of behaviour and with the thoughts, feelings and motivations underlying that behaviour.

In practice, psychologists help people with all sorts of problems, working with them to bring about change for the better.

For example, a psychologist may help someone on the autism spectrum to deal with social interactions.
